"It depends", of course, on what sort of event delivery mechanism you
use on Tiger. I'm not sure how fully kqueue was implemented back in
Tiger (that was a long time ago, for my aging brain, and I don't have
a handy Tiger box to check with) but there's always poll/select if you
want to have a background thread monitor events and then reflect them
back into the gcd dispatch loop somehow.
